Want to vacation on a Caribbean island for nothing? Aruba is seeking a local weather watcher – “world’s easiest job”

One of the most unusual positions in the entire world might be available, according to the Aruba Tourism Authority.

Candidates won’t need a lot of expertise, will have plenty to do, and will get to stay at a resort for six nights on the Caribbean island’s Eagle Beach.

What then is the task?

For a week, Aruba needs a “sunny figure” to serve as its weather forecaster.

The peculiarity is that the weather on the island hardly ever varies. The majority of the time, there are few, if any, solitary clouds in the sky. Officially, it boasts the most sunny days of any Caribbean territory.

According to the tourism board, anyone could essentially be Aruba’s weather reporter, making it the “easiest position in the world.”

How do you join the contest for the “easiest job in the world”?

The finest 30-second weather report for Aruba is required; the temperature is forecast to be around 26°C and sunny. Make it memorable, advises the tourism authority.

For a chance to be featured as a forecaster on Aruba’s social media channels, you can then upload this video on the island’s official tourism website.

Submissions are due by March 31.

What will your duties as the weather forecaster for Aruba be?

The novice meteorologist will stay at the Embassy Suites by Hilton Aruba resort for six nights and seven days. It is situated on Eagle Beach, which has white sands and blue waters, making it one of the most picturesque seaside spots.

This work week can be treated more like a vacation by bringing a friend or family member along to appreciate the stay.

“You’ll be featured on Aruba’s social channels while you soak up the sun, sip on a drink, and remind everyone that the weather never changes in Aruba,” says the island’s tourism board.

Shortly after the Isle of Rona in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides announced it was hiring two people for a “dream job,” Aruba posted an advertisement for the “world’s easiest employment.”

This unusual position entails watching over two vacation homes and helping to manage the 180 deer that live on the island. Rona is an isolated community with only four cottages overall, no stores, restaurants, or pubs, and it can only be reached by boat.

The position, which is no longer accepting applications, was described as ideal for someone who was “just like the island itself”: hardy, independent, and a little rough.
